Spring is finally here, and with Spring comes a good old Spring clean! The start of the new season is the perfect time to do a thorough clean around your home and garden, and tick off items on that ever-growing to-do list.

Cleaning out the garage and garden shed, giving the mattresses an air out, dusting out the very back corners of cupboards and giving the gutters a good thorough clean should all be on your list of spring cleaning items.

What else should you clean in a spring clean?

Aside from the usual spring clean tasks, it’s also a good time to think about other uncommon maintenance jobs around the home. For example, loose gate latches, an unsteady letterbox, or perhaps some noises in your roof cavity that needs to be addressed.

If you do have noises in your roof, you’ve probably experienced some sleepless nights listening to chirping, scratching, scurrying and other unsettling sounds.

The source of these noises is most likely birds, mice, insects or other pests calling your roof cavity home. And although it’s nice for them to be out of the cold, it’s not so nice for you and your family to have to tolerate.

As well as being a general disturbance, these unwanted critters have the potential to spread harmful diseases as well as ticks and fleas, and can also damage your home from their chewing and scratching.

These pests will often set up a nest or home with items already in your roof, so you may find your belongings will also experience some degree of damage.

You’ll also find your roof covered in excrement, further damaging your belongings and your home. All of these issues can seriously damage the value of your home and put your family at risk.
